Nallatech Demonstrates Latest FSB and PCI Express FPGA Accelerator Products at Supercomputing 2008

Austin, Texas November 17th 2008 — Nallatech, the domain expert in FPGA Accelerated Computing, will be providing live demonstrations of its latest PCI Express FPGA interface (PCIe) and Intel® Front Side Bus (FSB) FPGA accelerators at booth 281 at Supercomputing 2008.

Featured at the conference will be Nallatech’s in-socket Intel® FSB modules which achieve several industry firsts:

  • The first FSB FPGA accelerator featuring Xilinx-based FPGAs
  • The first FPGA accelerator with true 8GB/s peak and 5GB/s of sustained host communication bandwidth
  • The first FPGA accelerator with < 110ns access speeds to system memory
  • The first FPGA accelerator with up to 256GB of directly coupled server memory

The modular FSB-FPGA platform now has three modules available:

  • FSB Base Module, which interfaces directly to an Intel® Xeon® processor socket and the 64-bit 1066MHz FSB bus.
  • FSB Compute Module, which enables up to 660K logic cells per module by utilizing two large Xilinx Virtex™-5 FPGAs and SRAM memory that are user configured to host the accelerated algorithm.
  • FSB Expansion Module, the latest member of the family which includes one large Xilinx Virtex®-5 FPGA, QDR memory, plus off-module I/O with direct access to high-speed GTP (3.125Gbps) / GTX (6.5Gbps) transceivers and GPIO pins on the FPGA.

Each module is supplied as part of an integrated platform based on the Intel® Xeon® MP 7300 four-socket server. The four sockets can be configured with a mix of Intel® Xeon® processors and FPGA accelerator modules. Depending on the configuration, module pricing starts at less than $2500 in volume production.

For customers interested in exploring this PCI Express FPGA technology, Nallatech offers a development system that is a complete package of hardware, software and tools. This system is available now, details are available at www.nallatech.com.

“Nallatech has worked closely with both Intel and Xilinx to develop a comprehensive FPGA Accelerated Computing product line” said Allan Cantle, President and Founder of Nallatech. “Many computing problems can be accelerated by FPGAs. Our complete product line allows us to configure a computing system that optimizes performance, power consumption and price to customer application needs.”

“This is the first time an FPGA and a CPU are sharing the same large, tightly-coupled, system memory space in an embedded system,” says Ivo Bolsens, CTO of Xilinx. “Nallatech’s ready to use product bundles offer an ideal avenue for letting users try out this exciting new technology.”

Nallatech’s PCI Express FPGA and Intel® FSB accelerators are both compatible with Intel® QuickAssist Technology Accelerator Abstraction Layer (AAL), a comprehensive Intel initiative to optimize the use and deployment of accelerators on Intel® architecture platforms.

“Nallatech’s PCI Express FPGA and Intel Xeon processor Front Side Bus accelerator products provide customers with powerful and flexible FPGA-based solutions for Intel platforms,” said Dr. Nash Palaniswamy, Strategic Initiatives, Intel Corporation. “We are pleased to include Nallatech in our Intel QuickAssist Technology Community.”

Nallatech PCI Express FPGA Accelerator Qualified for HP ProLiant Server

Austin, Texas November 17th 2008 — Nallatech, the domain expert in accelerated FPGA computing solutions today announced that the Nallatech BenONE series of PCI Express FPGA accelerator cards has been qualified for the HP ProLiant DL160 G5 server. This is a significant development as the Nallatech product is the first PCIe based FPGA accelerator qualified in the HP HPC accelerator program for use in HP ProLiant servers.

By using Nallatech FPGA-based accelerators in the HP ProLiant server, customers can dramatically improve application response time with performance on selected applications increasing more than a factor of ten. This combination also significantly reduces energy, space and overall costs.

The Nallatech BenONE-PCIe series of accelerators provides users with a Xilinx user FPGA directly coupled to multiple banks of local SRAM and SDRAM memory. This processing node is attached via an 8-lane PCI Express host interface capable of up to 2GB/s aggregate host bandwidth. This platform provides customers with a powerful and flexible co-processor ideal for FPGA application development and deployment. It is supplied with support for the Intel QuickAssist Accelerator Abstraction Layer (AAL) software, drivers, IP cores and reference designs.

Nallatech is showcasing PCI Express accelerators featuring Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA technology at Supercomputing 2008, November 15-21 in Austin, Texas. Attendees visiting the HP booth (#1518) will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm running on the Nallatech BenONE-PCIe FPGA accelerator integrated in a HP ProLiant DL160 G5 server. FPGA experts from Nallatech will be available to answer questions and explain the benefits and capabilities of FPGA accelerators.

“The BenONE-PCIe has generated an unprecedented level of interest from our customer base since its launch late last year,” said Allan Cantle, Founder and President of Nallatech. “The integration of the BenONE-PCIe in HP ProLiant servers provides customers with a commercially available PCI Express platform capable of accelerating a wide range of compute intensive applications while reducing overall power consumption.”

“Businesses can lower their total cost of ownership through HPC hardware accelerators that improve application performance per watt and per data center square foot,” said Ed Turkel, product and technology marketing manager, Scalable Computing and Infrastructure Organization, HP. “As a participator in the HP Accelerator Program, Nallatech FPGAs can leverage the high-performance HP ProLiant server to accelerate data intensive applications such those used in scientific research and security.”
